My sweet Ipad rig!

I built this mostly out of stuff I found at an abandoned hockey rink. Notice the awesome PC STEREO speakers...I will be rockin' some serious internet songs! I hooked up my friend's Macbook air DVD drive, but the only CD ROM I have right now is for free AOL, which I don't think will run on the Ipad. Will it?

Also, most of the cables don't really do anything, but they give it that cool Apple style futuristic look! Yeah!

The screen guard and hood came from my aunt's Brother Word Processor. No glare, no fingerprints, and it flips out of the way if you need to touch the screen of the Ipad, which I do every few seconds. Trying to come up with a rubber band quick release system...

on to the pic!

Not sure what the purpose is other than the poster has way too much time on his hands!

How long does it take you to mount the ipad in that rig? It kinda defeats the portability. But cool nonetheless.

Looks like an iPad sitting in a pile of useless junk, to be honest.

I believe now is the moment for OP to make his "lol i troll u post....though hopefully with better grammar than traditional trolls.

Either way, well played OP, got a bit of a chuckle out of this.

LOL MR never ceases to please

My favorite part is that after a page of responses some people still don't get it!
